The Oxyrynchus Papyri, Part IV, edd. Bernard P. Grenfell and Arthur S. Hunt (London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co., 1904), pp. 24-25 (number 655 = "Fragment of a Lost Gospel," lines 17-23):
His disciples say unto him, When wilt thou be manifest to us, and when shall we see thee? He saith, When ye shall be stripped and not be ashamed.

λέγουσιν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ· πότε ἡμεῖν ἐμφανὴς ἔσει, καὶ πότε σε ὀψόμεθα; λέγει· ὅταν ἐκδύσησθε καὶ μὴ αἰσχυνθῆτε.
The Greek is misquoted (ἐκδύσητε for ἐκδύσησθε) in Sergey A. Ivanov, Holy Fools in Byzantium and Beyond, tr. Simon Franklin (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2006), p. 26.

The fragment is from the Gospel of Thomas, Logion 37. See Simon Gathercole, The Gospel of Thomas: Introduction and Commentary (Leiden: Brill, 2014), pp. 362-366.
